The bottom of the can says "L5197 16/10/16 14:49"

Appearance: The body is a light golden straw color that is completely opaque. Shadows are only visible as haze. There is some sediment in the glass that is a bit large but it isn't chunky. The head is large and white with a fluffy cloud-like appearance.

Aroma: There is a very light citrus aroma to the beer with a touch of sweet coriander.

Taste: It has a very nice fruity flavor to the beer which tastes like it comes more from the yeast than anything else. It has a bit of this passion fruit flavor and then there is a bit of some pear and a bit of what tastes like pineapple but not quite. I'm not getting any wheat here but the yeast character is very nice.

Mouthfeel: It is very light bodied and nicely effervescent. It Finishes a bit too dry and doesn't have a smooth texture on the palate. It finishes a tad rough but the overall drinking experience is decent.

Overall: I really liked the beer. I haven't had it in a bottle but in a can it seems to hold up pretty well for an import. I would drink it again and while it wouldn't be my top pick for a witbier I would still recommend it.
